"The Ranch Corral was created to solve the problem that practical experience programming a project under experienced developers is something that is rare for people new programmers to have.
At the Ranch Corral we look to solve this by allowing members to take part in an open source project together with other members of the forum.
This provides the crucial interactions between developers of different experience levels that allows for transference on knowledge you can only find by practical application." - Zach Rode
We would love for everyone to come to the Corral. Please join us, give us your input to help learn, shape and discuss project(s).
